3 takeaways from Belk Bowl win over SC

3 takeaways from Belk Bowl win over SC

Updates Jordan Ellis note in Facts and Figures.

At this point, we're just eagerly awaiting Belk making a game-changing play so that he can be crowned the all-time Belk Bowl MVP.

The Cavaliers' 14th-ranked pass defense put the clamps on a hot SC offense that had averaged 38.2 points per game over the past five games.

The team will be without senior wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who has chose to skip the game to prepare for the National Football League draft and to not risk getting injured.

The Gamecocks have been averaging 440.2 yards per game this season, 277.4 passing and 162.8 rushing. They beat MI 26-19 in the Outback Bowl last season. That helped contributed to a blowout loss to Navy. Jake Bentley had thrown for 16 touchdowns during that span, including a 510-yard, five-TD performance against No. 2 Clemson, but struggled without wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who elected to bypass the bowl game to begin preparing for the National Football League draft.

This year, Christmas Day had temperatures change little from the daytime high of 26 degrees to the overnight low of 22 degrees. There is also the possibility of the snow being mixed with rain, which could also turn into light freezing drizzle.

Virginia has 15 interceptions on the season as a team, and five of them belong to senior safety Juan Thornhill. He faces a Virginia defense that ranks 14th in the nation against the pass and is allowing less than 22 points per game. With WR Deebo Samuel sitting out the bowl game to prepare for the National Football League draft, the Gamecocks are expected to lean on Edwards.

Virginia: QB Bryce Perkins.

Olamide Zaccheaus had 12 receptions for 100 yards and three touchdowns.

Teams were once in same conference in Atlantic Coast Conference, but haven't played since 2003. If Bentley is able to have a big game, then the Gamecocks should be able to come out on top in a close match up.

SC (7-6) had averaged 32.6 points and 440.6 yards per game in 2018. U.Va. cornerback Bryce Hall leads the nation in pass breakups and helped the secondary give up the second fewest passing yards per game (180.1) and third fewest TD passes (12) in the ACC. Last season, UVA was satisfied with making a bowl game for the first time since 2011. The Cavaliers are 5-1 this season when Perkins, a junior college transfer who started his career at Arizona State, runs for a touchdown. Bronco Mendenhall's Virginia Cavaliers, on the other hand, don't have that same sort of excuse for having an identical 7-5 record this season.
